death, so i didn't know if this would work. here's what happened. >> i'm going to go to your mom's side of the family, i think. for some reason, i feel i'm pulled there. i have an older man coming immediately. >> grandpa. >> yeah, he comes very strongly. mom's side, correct? >> mm-hmm. >> immediately, he is so sweet and so connected to you. first thing he's saying is, i want her to know i'm clear mentally. okay. i don't know why this is coming across. >> he had alzheimer's. that's the picture i have right here. we've always thought if we had a boy, he'd be named after him, but we haven't had a boy yet. >> this is a dignified man, proud man, proud of the family, proud of -- hard working man. he's saying, to have to go through the process, slowly losing who i was was the hardest part. >> yes. >> he's referencing to grandma. making a connection to her.
i don't feel her on the other side so is she still here? >> yeah. >> nice. great. he's making a special connection to her. he's wanting it to be known, showing them dancing. he's acknowledging -- >> one of their first dates. >> acknowledging that they'll be able to dance again someday, and when it's her time to go, he'll be the first person to hold her hand and help her on the other side. there's reference to two girls. talking about -- since he's passed, clearly, so two girls. >> yeah. >> references to one, seeing him. there's an instant where he's sitting there and coming through and talking with them. little girl s babbling and looking behind you. it's him. connection to the youngest strongly. as far as children, he's referencing there is going to be a little boy that will be born. >> oh, my gosh. >> tears are a release. it's a healing process.
>> we loved him so much. >> of course. that love continues on. he's still around. he really is. >> i'm going to have to baby boy? >> there's the headline. >> tyler! >> we should point out how tyler does what he does. you hand him an object and you hold it in your hand. both jen and i want to say, when we first came up to tyler, we were both kind of spectacle. though we liked your show, we said, it's not going to work for us. i think we were equally surprised. especially just watching the buttons you were hitting with jenna. >> right. >> do you hear someone speaking to you? what is it? >> you know, i would say my sixth sense goes to the other side's senses. i generally see information, usually, but i can hear a voice, might get the scent of perfume or a physical sensation that corresponds with how one passed. >> skeptics can say, you'd find the information on the internet. >> google or whatever.
>> two of the things you said to me aren't found on the internet. one is you saw him on a roof. my grandpa fell off a roof. he was a house builder in midland, texas. and she was with babies my grandma had lost. how do you see? you see him on a roof? >> right. in this particular case, i had a vision of him and got a reference to a fall. seeing that, i saw him being at an older age working on a roof. that was the vision that came through. i had no idea i was reading either of you when i went into this. i was shocked when i saw who it was. >> i think the funny thing is, there were facts, again, talking about spectacles, but you can read online. other things you capture, which is the essence of someone. you talked about how funny my dad was. you thought, this is not something that you would google down and see. you also said in there, my sister majored in international relations and you said, who has been in international relations? i'm like, weird major. my sister. but the fact that you could pick up on details.
when i hugged you when we were done, you were sweaty. >> yes, very. >> what happens? is it like a physical thing? >> definitely can be. readings are different but it can be a physical process. it is draining sometimes, but when i'm connecting to an individual, because i take on physical symptoms, often of how they passed away, it can be physically draining so i sweat. >> i have to say, one of the things you've said privately is you do this because you get comfort. you give comfort for those who passed away. for me, you gave me great comfort. >> for me, too. i think when you started off, you said, i believe in god. i think everyone goes, okay. then everything else that comes is just from the -- so it's from the spirit. >> right. absolutely. i believe our loved ones are connected to us. when they come through, it's making that connection. >> i talked to my mom on the phone after we were done, and my mom is a stoic woman.
she felt so much relief. she said it was so sweet to hear. it's nice to know that the people that we love, you know, are still around. >> absolutely. the love continues on. that's really what this is all about. >> some people are speck klkept i called my mom and she said, it's on google. >> it's easy to be spectacle. >> you have to be in your presence. that's why i skeptic, sit down afterwards. >> congrats on season two. >> i know, i saw it coming. >> how many seasons do you have ahead of you? >> actually, i did see that coming. >> how? >> talk about our show. are we going to be cancelled? >> job security. we're fine. >> be sure to watch hollywood medium with tyler henry sunday nights at 10:00 eastern on e. >> first, this is "today" on nbc.
